Changed Due Date Anyone

Jen - October 7

My original due date was December 11, but my doctor moved it up to November 26 yesterday based on an ultrasound. He appeared to weigh 4lbs 8oz. Has anyone else experienced this, and does a bigger baby mean that he is more developed ( lungs, organs, etc) or is he just a fatty? Also, how could the date change by only 2 weeks if it was originally based on my LMP?

Wow, thats a big change in dates!! My origianl due date was Dec 1, then at the 17 week apt. it was changed to Nove 27, just 4 days earlier. I am positive of my last period and the ovulation date, (due to scheduled meds and an IUI) so I guess just based on his size it was changed. The books Ive read say that the first prediction is the most acurate because babies all grow at a different rate, but pregnancy is supposed to last (minding complications...) 40 weeks. When did your date change? Recently? Since mine is only 4 days and from what Ive read in the books, I just tell people Im due the week after Thanksgiving. It is cool that we are so close in dates though! How has things been going for you, are you big yet? My baby is breecha nd is always up in my ribs when I sit, it gets so uncomfortable, if he doesnt flip soon and gets bigger, Im going to be laying down or standing 24/7. Smetimes I feel like he could crack a rib. I dont know about the development though. I would think if they moved the due date up that much, then the baby would be "done" baking by then, so he would be farther developed right now then originally thought, right?! I dont have another drs apt. until the 20th, Ill be 34 and a half weeks then, so hopfully he'll do a guestimate on the weight and if Im progressing at all. If you wanna exchange emails let me know! We can wait it out together!

Hey Karlie! Thanks for the response. My date just changed yesterday, so my doc says she will continue to monitor my progress. I am terrified that if I do end up going to my old DD that I will have a 10lb baby! I am a pet_te person, so if she does not induce, I will most likely have to have a c section...scary! I have really gotten huge in the last 6 weeks or so. At first, everyone was asking if I was really prego because I stayed so small, but then my boy went through a ma__sive growth spurt and out popped my belly! I love it though. People are so nice to pregnant women- I am forever getting to cut in line (especially restroom lines) and people just smile at me all the time. My baby kicks/pushes me constantly in the ribs too! Sometimes it is so hard that it takes my breath away, but I guess that means he is strong and healthy, right? How do you like being pregnant? Have you had many problems like heartburn or stretch marks? I have been lucky so far, but I think my time is coming... Have you had many ultrasounds? We have had 3 so far- it has to be the most amazing thing I have ever seen! I love watching him move around...

so far I think its great!! Ive always had acid reflux, so this is nothing new, I take perscription Zantac, it helps a lot! I have been getting some pretty deep stretch marks around my waistline, but I am heavier so its not like I had a pretty ab area to begin with, although so far I am still down 10 pounds, I lost 15 early on then so far Ive only gained like five back. so I may come out on the negative side after hes born!! C-Section may be in my future too if he doesnt flip, but Im not too concerned, as long as he gets here safe and sound. I dont think Im that big yet, but I may get really huge still, I still have 7 weeks, who knows. It deffinately is obvious that Im pregnant though, which is fun, Hubby is just now getting to the point where I think it catches him off guard and he will just stare at me then rub my belly, its so cute! I love the attention, (and the fact that I have an excuse to be fat!) We start our cla__ses on Saturday, so hopfully that will go good! I really dont know what to expect. oh, we've had 4 ultrasounds. I hope my dr is gonna do another one, Im sure he will since the babys breech and all, plus I have no idea about how big he is yet, which I really want to know.

Lucky you! Yours gets put forward! Thy knocked mine back by alomst 5 weeks! Yes 5! I am petrified incase they are wron, and this baby is already over 2 weeks overdue. I'm due in 16 days now, but should of been 21st September. They will not let me go for another scan to put my mind at rest, nor will they see me every week, only every 2. It's seriously got to me.

Leslie- Sorry to hear that you got pushed back, but at least it is almost here now. I am suprised that you are still only seeing your doctor every 2 weeks- I am doing that now, and when I get to 36 weeks I will go once a week until he is born. Did you ask for another ultrasound? Anyway, you are almost there and soon you will have your precious baby in your arms...congratulations and good luck!

I have asked for another one yeah. They said they can't see any danger so refuse to book me in for one. I suppose I could pay for one if needed but I have no idea how much that would cost. Round here we only see midwife every 2 weeks at the end of the pregnancy. I have another appointment 19th October if I'm still pregnant, then I'm due 23rd October. I hope labour is coming. I am starting to get a lot more restless and I'm starting to get pains like Ive never had pains before, but my midwife said that is because it's my 3rd pregnancy, my muscles aren't as strong as they used to be. She knows how to make me depressed she does!
